A Sheffield United outfit in the midst of a timely return to form are set to act as hosts this weekend, in the most high-profile fixture of the Championship weekend.
This comes as the promotion-chasing Blades prepare to play host to table-topping Burnley.
Vincent Kompany’s Burnley, without question, represent the standout side in England’s 2nd tier at this moment in time.
After finally figuring out a way in which to convert what so often proved frustrating single-point hauls from earlier in the campaign into all three of late, the Clarets have surged clear atop the Championship table.
All told, Burnley have racked up four wins on the trot, and six from the club’s last seven.
The latest of these came in midweek, when a remarkable matchup at Turf Moor saw Kompany and co. recover from a goal down to bag a pair of goals in stoppage time, en route to a 3-2 downing of Rotherham United.
Such efforts, in turn, have seen Saturday’s visitors to Bramall Lane open up a five-point buffer over 2nd-placed Blackburn Rovers.
Safe to say, then, that Sheffield United will have their work cut out for them this weekend.
Whilst fans of the Blades may, until recently, have viewed the clash as something of a lost cause, though, the last couple of weeks have seen Paul Heckingbottom’s side, at long last, showcase clear signs of life.
After looking a safe bet for promotion heading into the international break, United’s form, of course, fell off the side of a cliff upon their return to action at the beginning of October.
Six successive outings without a win saw the Blades quickly slide down the Championship standings, setting alarm bells ringing in south Yorkshire.
To his credit, though, Heckingbottom has since steadied the ship, with a pair of trips to West Bromwich Albion and Bristol City over the course of the last week having given rise to six points from six.
Back up to third in the table, and just a point off the automatic promotion places, spirits, as a result, are high once more in the Blades’ camp.
We at 101 are therefore backing Saturday’s hosts to bring an end to Burnley’s winning streak, courtesy of a sharing of the spoils come the full-time whistle at Bramall Lane.
